Forest fires are caused by natural things like lightning, or in some cases humans, but the overarching problem is that these fires are becoming more intense because of droughts and dry vegetation that is undeniably the result of climate change. Some people might not even believe in climate change, but the truth is the ratio of all time high to all time low temperatures in the 2000’s were 10:1, whereas in the 60’s and 70’s they balanced each other out. This is clear evidence that our planet is warming up and that these increasing high temperatures are not the result of natural variability.
